Many of you that have followed this blog know that I embarked on an unofficial 100 Strangers Challenge last summer. For the official version check out this Flickr site. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage photographers to hone their street photography skills as well as become more at ease approaching strangers and taking their photograph. I'll be honest. I can pretty much talk to anyone, but approaching a stranger and having some type of interaction with them before taking their photograph ( a challenge requirement ) was hard for me at first. I am making progress, but what I need to really focus on now is setting up my shots and taking the portrait beyond just a "head shot". I have heard from some of you that you are interested in the project as well. I have decided to take a few days here and there and post some of my portraits that I have not previously shown. I have chosen not to include names or where they were taken in order to protect privacy. If I can be of any help, please contact me by email.
